MESSAGE NOTES

SUMMER OF ROCK - 6/20/21 - “Come As You Are”


Even the best father falls short of the perfect father.


Five ways God rocks as the perfect father


1) His patience and kindness never run out

As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us. - Psalm 103:12


From everlasting to everlasting, the Lord’s love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children’s children. - Psalm 103:17


2) He is always approachable

Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need. - Hebrews 4:16


3) You will never have to earn His love

God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. - Romans 5:8


4) You will never lose His love

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, [a]  neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love.  39  No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord. - Romans 8:38-39


5) He gives you His best

If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in Heaven give good gifts to those who ask Him. - Matthew 7:11


“Come as you Are”
